Proxy voting

Publicly traded companies and mutual funds occasionally make decisions that require shareholder approval through a vote; casting a vote can be performed in person or through a proxy. This page contains more information on any funds from John Hancock Investment Management that are currently conducting proxy votes, as well as records of how our funds have voted in other companies' proxies.
